It took many iterations to find this mug's companionable shape. The curve of the handle, the tilt of the rim even the weight were refined over time. The design features an elegant transition from square base to round top. Each mug is hand-dipped into the glaze and can show a slight variation on the rim. Ideally sized to hold the perfect Latte or your favourite hot drink.

Shaped for versatility
An elegant mug designed with ergonomics in mind. Transitioning invisibly from square base to round rim, it settles cosily into the hand while the soft-edged top invites the lips.
Comfort in hand
For tea-drinkers and coffee-drinkers alike, it delivers just the right dose of your chosen liquid comfort. Fill to the brim with latte, or shy of the top with Earl Grey.
Made to last
Stoneware is a resistant material that retains and distributes heat, so hot drinks lasts longer. Its strength also means mugs can be stacked, cleaned in a dishwasher or warmed up in a microwave.

Out of the fire
